About Forgetting

from by The Very Most



I forget everything before several months,
'Cept for all the stuff I screwed up.
Such is the brain I didn't ask for.

I recall every moment of When In Rome's debut album from '88.
Such is the brain I didn't ask for.

She can remember she wore the first day of first grade.
I'm glad that I still remember how to write an "A".

I forget the last thing's that I'd wanna lose.
Things that make a life worth living.
Such is the brain I didn't ask for.

She can remember what we at on the night we first kissed.
I feel glad that I can remember what year it is.

All that ever comes through's a fifteenth generation mimeograph.
And that description does a disservice to Tom Edison.
When you must depend on someone else,
Their stories make you smile, but don't get back your past.
